The PCS MHB is designed for multi-process, high productivity plate processing with a large focus on machine rigidity and capability. The MHB comes standard with a state-of-the-art 3 digital axis CNC drill capable of high speed drilling, tapping, boring and countersinking. Optional configurations include flame cutting, plasma cutting, plasma & flame beveling, pipe cutting, ink jet printing, pin marking or any combination, all with precision motion control.

    Machine Mass

    The MHB main beam weighs in at over 4 metric tons. Large mass is crucial for high speed drilling. Unlike a standalone machining centre, plate profile machines such as the MHB are dynamic and process plate on a hollow cutting/drilling bed. This leads to what can be severe vibrations when drilling/machining. Therefore, the machine needs as much mass behind it as possible in order to minimise vibrations when drilling. Fewer vibrations means faster drilling and better tool life!

Burny 10 Control

    Solid Cutting/Drilling Table

    The cutting/drilling table is as important as the machine on top of it. Our cutting/drilling tables are built just as tough as the MHB machine. They have several supports connecting the steel plate directly to the concrete floor. This is to minimize vibrations that are common with high speed drilling on profile machines.

    Ease of Operation

    Our state-of-the-art drilling HMI integrates seamlessly with the tried and trusted Burny 10 CNC. With pre-loaded drilling libraries, the operator doesn't require an in depth knowledge of drilling speeds and feeds. The HMI was designed to be extremely user friendly and as such can be mastered in literally seconds.


    High productivity is a crucial factor when investing in capital equipment such as profile cutting machines. The MHB achieves the highest productivity in its class thanks to its mass and a solid cutting/drilling table. The fastest drilling times and longest tool life are the key factors in achieving such high productivity.

    Coolant System

    We offer a Flood Coolant System, a UNIST Minimum Quantity Lubricant (MQL) system, external spindle jets or any combination on MHB series cutting and drilling machines.
